We've made it home from Gigi's house and I have quickly thrown myself into birthday prep! Someone specials 4th birthday is coming up quickly and I have yet to get out invitations. I have the cutest idea for the invites and I've had quite a lot of fun putting them together tonight. Normally I like to play around in photoshop and make my own photo invites but this time I'm doing the cutest paper invite. I can't wait to share it with ya'll!
It's been so easy to create to using the new toy Gigi and I are sharing and I get to play with it first to make this invites. Thanks Gigi - it's awesome! This is the Silhouette machine. So far it's like the best scrapbooking tool ever.

I've only just begun delving into what this little machine can do and I'm already impressed. It can cut paper, vinyl, you can print some images then cut them and it will remember where to cut them, cut heat transfer images - I think family reunion shirts are next on my agenda to investigate if I can make some for our second family reunion trip to the Rangers baseball game. I just took the machine out of the box today and am already almost done with my first project (not a moment too soon since Abby's birthday is right around the corner!) Best thing about this machine so far: the fact that you don't need cartridges you can just find whatever you are searching for without having to go to the store for a whole cartridge that may have more than what you need/would ever use.
Pictures from our last adventure in Lake Charles and maybe an invite preview coming tomorrow - it's too late and I'm tired from our long day to get them up tonight.
